Were there to be no support in the whole history of ethical and moral thought, were there no acknowledged confirmation from medical science, were the history of legal opinion to the contrary, we would still have to conclude on the basis of God's Holy Word that the unborn child is a person in the sight of God. He is protected by the sanctity of life graciously given to each individual by the Creator, Who alone places His image upon man and grants them any right to life which they have.

Only a leftist blog could come up with this!
If they gave the equivalent of a Pulitzer Prize for ridiculous headlines, the doozy from today’s left-leaning Daily Beast would walk away with the award:
“How Wendy Davis Became America’s Conscience on Abortion”
I don’t know about you, but I had to read that twice.
Wendy Davis, you’ll recall, stood up – literally for 13 hours – to
filibuster against a bill in the Texas state Senate that would have
protected the lives of little human beings who were developed enough in
their mothers’ wombs that they could feel pain. Little babies like this:
I think of someone with a “conscience” in relation to this little baby,
what comes to mind are the wonderful doctors and nurses who care for
such babies; the moms and dads who love them; the policy makers who
speak up in defense of these voiceless members of our human family.
Wendy Davis doesn’t come to mind.
But apparently there are voices in the blog and activist
communities who believe Wendy Davis is deserving of praise by virtue of
the fact that she stood up for, of all things, late abortions.
Case in point: On Saturday, Sen. Davis will receive the “Señora
Internacional” award in Laredo, Texas. Activists clearly are using the
award to help Davis in her run for governor, even though her policies
would result in the killing by dismemberment of tiny, vulnerable members
of the Hispanic community – the very group the award references.
Excuse me, but I want to see a Señora Internacional award given to
a nurse or doctor who helps treat and save the lives of babies in the
womb; or to mothers themselves, who sacrifice so much out of love for
their children; or to a volunteer counselor who gives of her time so
that women with unexpected pregnancies can get all the information they
deserve about alternatives to abortion.
Those are the people whose consciences should be honored, respected, and heralded in headlines.
Wendy Davis did one thing: She “stood” for the right to kill the
most vulnerable human beings imaginable – little babies in the womb,
babies old enough to feel pain. I can’t find that connected with the
word “conscience” in any dictionary I know.
National Right to Life created and helped pass in 10 states the
Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, the law that protects unborn
babies from abortion at the stage they can feel pain. Medical evidence
indicates this is at least by 20 weeks in the womb. Now NRLC is trying
to pass the bill nationally, so babies everywhere are protected no
matter where they live. Please click below to contribute generously to
the National Right to Life Committee to help us pass this humane
protection in more states and in Congress. Thank you! Carol Tobias,
National Right to Life President
